embracing equity International Women’s Day 2023

It’s time to level the playing field 

Gender equality is a critical factor in our success. We're committed to empowering women in our business and in the workplace, and to unleashing the potential of women entrepreneurs in our markets. 

But not everyone’s journey begins in the same place. An environment in which people from different backgrounds can prosper, and diverse, mission-advancing opinions can be heard, has become crucial to achieving equality. Therefore, it’s time to start the conversation about equity. 

Embracing equity means not only treating everyone equally, but actively listening to their lived experiences to provide everyone with the tools they need to succeed, so that they can really fulfil their potential. 

Let’s embrace equity. Let’s level the playing field.
